The future funk power trio of Cubic Zirconia get together onstage and create some of the craziest, freakiest energy known to man. But did you know that translates to the DJ booth just as well? CZ synth maestro Nick Hook put together this vibe-building mix featuring tracks from their new LP Follow Your Heart (out now on Fool’s Gold) alongside deep joints from the band’s own remixography, unreleased jams and more. “Our friends laced us with some OG shit,” says Hookemon. “And people can catch up on some stuff we’ve done.” Do what the man says!

The title track of Kid Gloves’ “Music Power” release on FG remains one of the year’s thumping-est tracks. So its only natural that the guys would whip together a DJ mix for the Foolcast in praise of all things powerful: power dressing, power chords, Power Rangers…

When even 50 Cent is rocking curls, you know that Summer ’11 is getting off to a particularly wavy start. So what better time to release “The Activator Mix” into the world?!?
Fool’s Gold is proud to present a brand-new DJ mix from NegroClash, aka NYC party stalwarts and longtime label friends DJ Lindsey, Prince Language and Duane Harriott. The trio have whipped up a note-perfect collection of funkables perfect for your next house party, BBQ, vacation drive, or any other hot-weather activity that requires that extra degree of jams. No tracklist, just know these are the handclaps, basslines, 909s and good vibes you absolutely need in your life. Plus: it’s hosted by Sun Ra!
If you’re feeling these joints, be sure to check the NegroClash crew at subMercer in NYC this Friday (6/16) for even more. Check the flyer and info on Facebook.

Who is Club Cheval? “Nous sommes un collectif, un label, un laboratoire, une écurie. Nous sommes situés entre Lille, Paris et Londres.” This stable of bass wizards has been responsible for some of the funnest, oddest club tracks of the past year or so. The youngest of the crew is Canblaster, who burst on the scene like a synth-wielding Harry Potter with facemelting singles like “Jetpack,” “Clockworks,” and a gleefully warped collection of remixes, like his take on our Style Of Eye and Slagsmålsklubben single “Homeless.”
Combine that discography with his enthusiastic, thoroughly unpredictable approach to DJing, and it’s no wonder that Canblaster has quickly become an extended fam favorite over here at FG. But don’t take our word for it – go float with his brand new Foolcast mix, “Skyscrapers Are The Mountains Of The City,” a hypnotic collection of digital jams new and old.

For the latest edition of our Foolcast mix series, we’re proud to present the debut of Missile Command, a new DJ team comprised of Neptunes / N*E*R*D mastermind Chad Hugo and longtime DMV partyrocker Hip Hop Dan.
The dynamic duo just got home from soundtracking a weekend of afterparties at Coachella and hopped right back into the booth to put together this Foolcast for us, falling somewhere between a traditional DJ mix – new favorites, remixes, left-field bangers – and a studio broadcast sneak peek. Check the tracklist after the jump, featuring tons of exclusives from the likes of No Planes In Space (another Chad collab, this time with Paul Banks of Interpol), Lupe Fiasco and more.

The latest Foolcast comes from New York City’s own Eli Escobar in the form of “Find A Friend.” This hour-long mix is a collection of unreleased disco edits from Eli’s personal, handmade stash. Says Eli: “I’m gonna leave off a tracklist only cause I like people to not know what’s coming next, I feel like it makes it more fun for the listener…” Dig in and dance, people!
For more from Eli, check his latest single “Love Thing” on Plant, as well as his still-jacking remix for Nacho Lovers’ FG debut, “Acid Life.” And if you’re in NYC, go celebrate Eli’s (and Blu Jemz’) birthdays at Submercer this Sunday (1/16).

Two independent record labels, united under a groove…
